Folks,

It's crunch time in the presidential election, and there are still a lot of voters out there who haven't decided either way. Barack Obama and Joe Biden are working hard to win over the swing voters. Several rockin' comics and I want to help!

I know you've already dropped some cash on Obama buttons that haven't arrived and a shirt that came in the wrong size. Don't hold that against him. And, more importantly, don't let that keep you from our "last push" fundraiser! There will be comedy, music, a special video message from someone that we'd like to believe is the real VP nominee for the GOP, and a raffle with some pretty nice prizes!

Oh, and a Republican elephant pinata!

So, come one, come all to SNC: Switzerland Neutral Comedy's Un-Neutral Fundraiser for Obama/Biden!

Let's make change with comedy!
-Evan M.

'K. I'm Canadian, not American, so technically none of this is my business and my "vote" certainly doesn't count for anything... but can someone who likes Obama please explain why a man who has literally spent time hanging out with criminals/traitors in his country (such as Bill Ayers, who bombed the Pentagon in the '60s) and people preaching sedition (his pastor, Wright's "God damn America" rhetoric?) deserves to become a "leader" of said country? I couldn't vote for a Member of Parliament whose religion preaches that God should damn Canada, no matter what part of the political spectrum he/she was from, just on principle. Disliking or disagreeing with McCain, Palin, Bush etc is fine - I do on a lot of things too - but what is good or deserving or substantive or anything about Barack Obama? What is there to vote for Obama for?

Let me start off as saying that I strongly considered not responding simply because I posted this as an invitation to an event and not a provocation of debate and would like to leave it that way. I respect your right to your opinion even though I disagree with it. We are all entitled to our views. My intent here is simply to express said disagreements and not engage in a heated arguement.

Obama has spent time in recent years, long after the things Ayers did that happened when Obama was a kid working on issues of funding for public schools with Ayers. He has distanced himself from his pastor. Obama himself has never said anything about "damning America." His religion is Christianity and I think most Christians would tell you that their religion does not in any way preach "God damning" any country. But, I'm Jewish so you'd have to ask them. What strikes me as actually unpatriotic is when there is a governor of a state that is married to someone who has actively called for the state's succession from the country said governor is hoping to be vice president of.
